Rango Game

The new Rango movie is out, and there are some really cool lizards and other critters in this movie...

Rango is a chameleon who always dreamed of becoming a hero like in the movies.  When he wakes up in the position to save a town from the wild west he realizes that he can prove everyone that he is really brave.

We have some really cool reptiles at the  Santa Ana Zoo and, if you come visit them and play the Rango scavenger hunt game, you'll get a really special prize from the ILM Studio folks and the Rango movie!

Here's how it works:

1- Come to the Zoo during regular hours and ask the ticket booth for your Rango game card.

2- As you adventure around the Zoo, look for the answers to the 3 reptile questions on your game card. 
(Hint: the answers are the proper name of the animal found on the green signs at the critter exhibits)

3- Answer the questions on the card.

4- Take your completed card to the Treetop Toys gift store and if it's correct, you'll get a prize from the people at ILM Studio.  It's that easy!
(Be sure to tell them where you heard about it: Facebook or Twitter)

Visit the Santa Ana Zoo and play the Rango game, and go see Rango in theaters beginning March 4!

(All prizes are provided by ILM.  Offer valid only while supplies last.)
